PRIVATE STRUCTURE (lease only- CIR CODE: 048053LTN0005). Le Querce dei Medici, a welcoming old manor house used by the Signoria of the Medici as a hunting lodge, lies in a hilly position in the unique scenery of the green hills of the Florentine Mugello. The recent attentive renovation carried out by the owners has rendered the villa particularly comfortable for its guests, while respecting the typical characteristics of its history. Particular attention was paid to the use of typical materials of the period in order not to alter the uniqueness of the villa, such as the wooden ceilings with terracotta tiles, the terracotta floors on the ground floor, the sandstone of the typical fireplace or the beautiful round terracotta arch dividing the living room. Large elegant rooms embellished with antiques, spacious cosy bedrooms, a well-lit and fully-equipped kitchen and a beautiful garden with private swimming pool, all make this property the perfect destination for family reunions or for hosting large groups of friends looking for a relaxing stay in a tranquil setting. Very close to the most beautiful city of Tuscany, Florence, as well as to various attractions such as the Poggio dei Medici golf club, 3 km away (http://www.golfpoggiodeimedici.com), Lago di Bilancino with beach facilities, 5 km away (http: //www.bahiacafe.com), a fly fishing reserve on the Sieve river, 500 m away (https://www.tailwatersieve.it), and the famous Mugello race track owned by Ferrari, 6 km away. The exterior of the villa spreads out in a riot of colourful flowers, with areas dedicated to aromatic herbs and pergolas of wisteria with their intoxicating scent, all surrounded by multicoloured hedges in the shade of centuries-old oaks where guests can relax in the set-up areas. Furthermore, its location, a few kilometres from the motorway exit, allows you to get quickly to the principal Tuscan cities of art such as Florence, Lucca, Pisa and the characteristic villages of the Florentine Chianti.
NB: The owners live within the property, in a barn 50 m from the house, but the garden and pool are for the exclusive use of guests. The owners are very discreet and will respect your privacy, but will be at your disposal in case of need.
